Saturdays with the Saints

By Jenny Monahan

Fall, 2011, is the Season for Saints!

In October, we will celebrate the feast days of St. Teresa of Avila and St. Francis of Assisi, and the anniversary of the canonization of Edith Stein. In November, the month of all saints, we will honor the recent beatification of Blessed John Paul II.

Now, courtesy of Institute for Church Life, you can spend one hour with the saints before the game on selected weekends this fall. Come nourish your Catholic faith and your mind at the same time
with talks by distinguished members of the Notre Dame faculty.

All sessions are 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
